Recruitment information regarding current Covid-19 virus

This statement was released from British Army’s Facebook page,

“Due to the developing COVID 19 situation, and based on current Government advice, we have had to pause face-to-face recruiting and basic training operations. These measures will not affect the British Army’s ability to support the Nation as required at this challenging time. Be reassured that the British Army is still recruiting, the process will continue ‘virtually’ and we are working on a different way to run our assessments which avoids bringing together large groups of candidates. Basic Training will begin again as soon as conditions allow.

All candidates, recruits and their families are being informed. We recognise how difficult and worrying this will be for all concerned. Any recruit in training who is affected will retain their place in training. Those who are due to start training will be given a new start date as soon as possible and all other candidates will be kept informed as the situation develops.”
 
Interesting if Depots/Training facilities do cease training that then frees up a lot of beds for overspill hospitals - should they God forbid be needed.

Oh yes, always a reason behind it & with armed guards & razor wire fence easier to keep the sick in.
Controlled and manageable but at the moment we carry on treating as we are.

Do know of undertakers looking at getting in refrigerated containers to store bodies in.
Or just mass graves like in the foot & mouth crisis a few years ago, but people are different to cattle!

How odd.

The Royal Navy & Royal Marines are continuing to man Armed Forces Careers Offices and continue training based on current Government advice and their vital task in, erm, "support of the NHS".

Clearly there appears to be a few crossed-wires (or loose wires/cannons) ;)
